Cabernet Sauvignon
Sonoma County, 2008

A few barrels from the 2008 Scherrer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon harvest spoke neither of the individual site, or the appellation, but insisted on a place of their own. This harmonious wine with good varietal character should give substantial pleasure without significant bottle age — two to five years from the vintage should be sufficient.

Winemaker’s Notes

All of our Cabernet Sauvignons could be labeled as Scherrer Vineyard designates, but they do not all speak clearly of that origin to me, nor do they all exist in harmony in the same blend. Once again, a few barrels demanded separation from the other usual two wines. It is very much like the 2007 version of this with its ‘old-school’ balance rather than ‘chocolate milkshake’ style, good red fruit, pert and perky with nice acidity and medium-weight.

*“Chocolate Milkshake Wine” is yummy when young, soon melts, and finally turns sour like a milkshake will.
